All The Tropes! It will ruin your life!


Wesley Willis provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Bunny Ears Lawyer
  • But You Screw One Goat!: He wrote many songs about bestiality. Apparently, these were targeted at his demons, who he believed would be too grossed out to bother him.
  • Catch Phrase: "Rock over London! Rock on, Chicago!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Was diagnosed as schizophrenic.
    • He had an astounding gift for hyperbole, too. Check out his song for Alanis Morrisette:

"You are a rocking maniac! You are a singing hyena! You are a rock star in Jesus' name! You really rock Saddam Hussein's ass!"

"Pontiac: We build excitement!"
